Sipsey River Trail

from East Side, drive west on LCR 6/WCR 60 for 3.8 miles
Double Springs, AL 35553

Moderate - Difficult.  This long trail crosses and follows the Sipsey (Fork of the Black Warrior River). This one has it all - flowing and falling water, rocks, bluffs, wildflowers, camping, hiking challenges - definitely one of the best trails in the Wilderness, albeit requiring a little effort.

The trail begins and ends entirely within the Wilderness and can be hiked with equal pleasure in either direction. This description arbitrarily starts from the western side, from where trails 201, 206, and 209 all converge.
